The American Farm Bureau Federation has lent its support to Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the United States Supreme Court.
Gorsuch was nominated by
President Donald Trump to fill the empty seat in the nation’s highest court
left by the passing of Justice Antonin Scalia.
Gorsuch is a
Colorado native with an impressive resume. His education includes Columbia,
Harvard and Oxford and he’s served as a judge for the US Court of Appeals for
the 10th Circuit since 2006 when he was nominated to the position by
former President George W. Bush.
“Judge Neil Gorsuch was
nominated last night to the Supreme Court. If confirmed, he will assume the
seat last occupied by Justice Antonin Scalia. He is a worthy successor. The
American Farm Bureau Federation calls for his swift confirmation by the Senate,“ AFB President Zippy Duvall said in a release. “Gorsuch
has expressed an appreciation for the environment and is a conservationist – a
philosophy shared by America’s farmers and ranchers who serve as caretakers for
we know about (Gorsuch) tells us he deserves to be confirmed. ... Any Senator voting against a legal scholar like Gorsuch will have to produce
a serious justification for a no vote. America’s farmers and ranchers will be
watching closely,” the statement said.
